The worst kept secret in Hong Kong has been that the rather plain looking construction in IFC mall Hong Kong would soon be a new Apple Store. In fact those who use Foursquare have been able to check in for months now to a store that to this date has just been a bunch of plywood. But late last night the plywood was recovered in what most people are saying is a rather ugly Apple signage. Red and white to match the taxis of Hong Kong I guess.
In slightly related news, the Apple reseller in IFC, DG Lifestyle, officially closed this weekend in anticipation of the Apple launch. They have moved their store to nearby Pacific Place where they have a monopoly on Apple gear in that mall.
